Allergies, also known as allergic diseases, are a number of conditions caused by hypersensitivity of the immune system to typical harmless substances in the environment. These diseases include hay fever, food allergies, atopic dermatitis, allergic asthma, and anaphylaxis. The severity of allergies varies from person to person and can range from a minor irritation to anaphylaxis - a potentially life-threatening emergency. Early diagnosis and avoiding exposure to the corresponding allergens are currently effective preventative methods.
